Damian Sanderson

Growing up in Sanford, MI, Damian Sanderson always wished to be somewhere else. He wanted to perform and create, and he yearned for travel, excitement, and recognition. Through training and dedication, he got everything he thought he wanted, the warm sun and adventures of Orlando, Florida, the recognition of his peers and Ballroom Greats across the globe, and a platform to create.

But as it turns out, Sanderson realized he was lonely, missing home, his family, and the charm and comfort of the Midwest. After reevaluating his core values he knew he had to make a change. His retirement plan was to open a performance space with food and entertainment, surrounded by a community that wanted to grow around him. Only after following his heart, moving back home, and meeting some wonderful people, did that plan start to become a reality. Sanderson is now an integral part of Highland Blush and Ataraxis Yoga & Dance, both in Alma, MI.
